If you are en route from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower as you play tourist, stop off at the Hotel Belmont. It’s got no gimmick and no interesting story – it’s just gorgeous. The seating is plush and posh without going overboard. They make excellent cocktails and they are obsessively proud of them, given the number of booze-focused Facebook post over the last year. Who can blame them though? A bar that dazzling deserves to be celebrated.
